Built in 1896, our house was the homestead of Charles Tryon’s horse powered farm. The iconic barn served as the command center of the property. No doubt Mr. Tryon was proud to have modern in-door plumbing in his brick home when straw hats, overalls, and long dresses were in style on the frontier of Indiana.
In the 1940’s the Tryon family decided to move further west. The new owners, Walter and Nellie Werner raised dairy cattle in the spirit of agricultural America.
Farmer Werner sold Tryon Farm to Ed and Eve Noonan in the early 1990’s. With over 150 acres of meadows, prairies, woods, and ponds, the Noonan’s honored the land’s heritage and repurposed it as a housing community and nature preserve.trustopt.com
Tryon Farm Guest House continues its role as the anchor of the homestead, welcoming guests to share in the preservation of natural farmland.
